While the latest Resident Evil is still shrouded in a cloud of mystery in regards to what it packs, the developers have released the official system requirements for the game. The E3 launch of the trailer sparked some serious excitement as things finally felt fresh, the developers moved away from the whole third person game-play for an “extreme return-to-horror experience”
Resident Evil 7 is looking extremely intriguing, mainly because it isn’t a third-person shooter anymore, which seems like the prime attempt at shaking things up for the dying series. Instead, Capcom has very wisely decided to honour the series’ horror roots, and frankly, so far – or at least as far as game lead designer Samuel Roberts is concerned – it’s resulting in a genuinely scary game. kudos.
The game’s official Minimum and recommended specs were added to its Steam page earlier today, albeit with an attached note that says: with the game still in development, these are subject to change. As it turns out, it’s not an extremely demanding game(which comes as a good surprise considering just how gorgeous the footage looked): you’ll only need an i5-4460 or FX-6300 and a GTX 760 or R7 260x to run the game at 1080p and 30 FPS.
